I'll say it's a fair deal. I wouldn't have given him much more than AJ Burnett money and would probably rather have Lackey than Burnett anyways. I'm a little shocked Boston went out and made this move, since they are sort of in no man's land with so many lousy contracts still on the books for this year. I'll be interested in seeing what their final payroll number comes to for this coming year.

Lackey, Beckett, Lester, plus there's a healthy Dice-K and Buchholz maybe making the leap. That's a scary rotation, arguably the best in baseball from top to bottom.

Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

That's disappointing, but not surprising. I thought the writing was on the wall when Scioscia pulled Lackey from game five of the ALCS. I just had a feeling, right then and there, that Lackey wasn't coming back. It'll be interesting to see how he does in Boston, though.

I believe, with Chone Figgins now at the Mariners, that there is no longer anyone from the 2002 Wold Series winning team currently on the Angels' roster.

This is a true story.

I went to get my copy of "The Book of Basketball" at Downtown Disney in Anaheim. When I finally met Bill Simmons, we shook hands, he commented on my Angels shirt and asked if I'd miss Vlad Guerrero, and after he signed my book and gave me some encouraging words, I told him we'd see the Celtics in June.

His response?

"Oh yeah. And by the way, thanks for John Lackey."

I had no response to that, because I knew he was probably right.

I will now dunk my head in an Angel Stadium waterfall.

All hail the Hypno-Toad

1. It's Adrian Gonzalez, not Rodriguez. 2. He was traded to Texas last season in the Urbina deal. Stokes is the Marlins 1B of the future.
